I pride myself in the fact that I have lived in New York for a long time and have never gone to see a musical of any kind. But, that might have to change when the musical adaptation of the Bret Easton Ellis book hits the stage.
The Godfather: The Coppola Restorations
I read Herman Melville's classic story of aquatic revenge back when I was in high school. And by "read" I mean I had a comic book version like the one from Major League that I used to get the basic idea and then just faked my way through class.
Looks like Kanye has stopped smashing cameras at LAX long enough to develop a show for Comedy Central. They concept? Hip hop meets the Muppets. Sweet.
With the return of Heroes on Monday, I have heard a bunch of people talking about which power from the show they would want for themselves. But there are a few abilities that never get any love, mainly because they would be useless in the real world. These are the seven powers I wouldn't bother putting on tights for. 7. Mass Poisoning
Town puts down grunge and lattes only to get tear gassed by cops.
SNL seems to be taking full advantage of all the ridiculousness that's going on as part of this presidential race. They better get it in now, though. If John McCain wins, he'll probably order all of their tongues removed. Nah, I'm just kidding. He'll probably just have them killed.
Days are getting shorter and temperatures are getting colder, which means staying in and watching TV is even more appealing. Plus, everyone is broke, but luckily, you have the series premiere of Worst Week and three hours of Heroes to keep you busy tonight. Read on for our previews of both. Worst Week
Mashups that go to the extent of overlaying dialogue with mouth movement should be celebrated. This one is a great example. Your favorite puppets hurling curse words is just an added bonus.
No one except Michael Bay and his minions even knows if Megatron is going to be in Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen, but if he is, it looks like he may have given up his wings for some tank treads and a huge gun. Even if these photos don't end up being accurate, they're still kind of bad-ass, especially the back side.
No one expects you to actually watch the Emmy Awards Show. I have an unnatural relationship with TV and I can barely make it through them without falling asleep. But, that doesn't mean we can't criticize their choices from the comfort of our office chairs the morning after they happen.
We have been hearing about Seth Rogen's Green Hornet movie for a while and today it got its director. The movie drops on June 25, 2010 and will have Stephen Chow at the helm and in Bruce Lee's old role as Kato. If you're not super familiar with Chow, he's the guy who has directs weird, but cool movies like Kung Fu Hustle and Shaolin Soccer.
When J.J. Abrams was asked if the Shat was going to have a part in the upcoming Star Trek reboot, he claimed that Bill wasn’t interested in doing a cameo….
I'm not a big Chris Cornell fan, but I thought the song he did for Casino Royale really fit the movie. It sounded epic and polished like James Bond himself. This new Quantum of Solace track from Jack White and Alicia Keys, however, sounds kind of like they slapped it together in one of their 30-car garages.
As usual, things happen that we don’t have the time to slander. Here’s today’s list. It involves a Disney movie for The Rock, Megan Fox, a stolen childhood memory, Playboy playmates, and even more gratuitous T&A.
Update: Reports are now saying that Microsoft hasn't canceled its series of nonsensical commercials, just put them on the back burner for a while. I, for one, am relieved.
I have a thing for French girls. I’ll take them over a tanned sorority sister in a tube top any day of the week. They have style and know how to look naturally sexy. Seems like Tarantino agrees with me and has added a few new beauties to his cast. Here are some pictures.
In case you have a super hot date tonight and you're not going to be around to catch the season premiere of Knight Rider, Hulu has the whole thing just for you. And you don't have to have a date if you want to watch it, just a boss that won't mind you sitting through a 42-minute TV show during office hours. If you work for the government, you should be fine.
I have no idea why this video even exists other than to promote Mean magazine, but as a fan of Ben Kinsgley and a super-fan of Minor Threat, it definitely made me confused and even a little embarrassed. He's one of the world's most respected actors, couldn't he have at least learned the lyrics to the song?
We still have a few more weeks before 30 Rock makes its triumphant return (apparently Tina Fey was busy working on her Sarah Palin impression).
We're really closing in on the return of The Office, but until then I offer you this compilation of ever utterance of the phrase, "That's what she said," ever to be heard on the show. It obviously took someone a lot of time to download, watch and then edit these together. The least we could do is watch.
He’s known as one of the most unstable asshole directors out there, but today two of his actors from the set of Nailed are standing up for him. Here’s a little history of the conflict and some background on the ‘mercurial’ David O' himself.
I like Andy Samdberg. I even thought Hot Rod was kind of funny, but I don't get the hype people are giving this "Space Olympics" video. It seems kind of cheesy that SNL would save up all of their Olympics jokes and just use them on the season premiere even though they're a month too late. I can't wait until next February when they bust out their World Series jokes.
I have a hard enough time getting anything done thanks to the enormous amount of entertainment that's constantly available. Now, thanks to every TV show ever coming to DVD, it's getting even harder to squeeze work between episodes. But, there isn't a ton of great stuff out this week, so don't go canceling those plans just yet. Here's the best of the pack.
I think a lot of dudes don’t like Ben Affleck because he’s so successful. He won an Oscar for co-writing Good Will Hunting, has starred in some blockbusters (and some flops), and did a good job with his directorial debut in Gone Baby Gone. Now he’s back at making us feel unsuccessful by writing and directing a new Warner Brothers flick.
You would think four seasons of a wildly popular reality show and even a Behind the Music would be enough time to get Ozzy's story out there, but Jack and Sharon are reportedly teaming up to release a movie about the Oz Man's life in honor of his 60th birthday. As a fan, I think the movie could be good, but as a guy who hates hearing people's Ozzy impressions, I'm a little tentative.
It’s really hard to make a movie where a child star is defiled. So hard it took filmmaker Deborah Kampmeier many years to finally get a release for her Southern Gothic tale Hounddog. Amid boos at press screenings and horrible reviews, the movie hits a few theatres Sept. 19. Here’s a little more info about the controversy surrounding the project.
Tonight is the season four finale of Weeds and I am extremely excited. This has been the best season in a while and reports are that Mary Louise Parker gets more naked than ever tonight. 10 PM can't come soon enough.
It's Monday afternoon, so that means it's time for our weekly trailer mashup. This one is amazing, and really shows what a little music, voice over, and re-cutting can do to change the entire feel of a movie. I’ll never look at Jaws the same. Feel free to send us your favorite mashups to email@example.com.
What if Glen and Gary and Glen and Ross were all illiterates with Tourette's syndrome? It would take the love on one man to teach them to read. This one is just genius, gents, genius.
